Tom Kerridge returned to his home city of Gloucester to share the skills that have made him a household name.

Speaking ahead of his appearance: “Having grown up in Gloucester and with strong family ties in the area, I can’t wait to return to the city. I’m really looking forward to meeting everyone at Gloucester Quays Food Festival, it should be a fantastic weekend.”

With his warmth and keen sense of humour, Tom who is the chef patron of the two-Michelin starred Hand and Flowers pub plus another restaurant, The Coach, both in Marlow, has had a hugely successful TV career.
